it's that simple. >> reporter: prosecutors sitting in silence, bewildered, desmaid. judge we're disappointed with the verdict today and surprised. because we know the facts and we put in every piece of evidence that existed. >> reporter: the identities of the deciding jurors a mystery of the the judge barred the release of their names giving them the option to contact the media on their own. >> the 12 jurors have declined to talk to you. >> reporter: the defense team said this is what justice looks like. >> you can not convict someone until they've had their day in court. >> that was jessica stone reporting there. the verdict stunned many people who have been following this case. facebook and twitter both blowing up with reaction today. in fact, hundreds of people think that casey anthony is guilty of murdering her daughter. the defense attorney ted williams is here to help us make sense of the verdict.
thank you for joinings. >> my pleasure, shawn. >> what do you think of the jury's decision? did the prosecution fail to make its case? i think, fro, there are shock wave -- first of all, there are shock waves going throughout the country. i think the prosecution overtried this case. listen, they could not show the actual cause of death. yet they wanted to stick the needle in the arm of this young lady and the jury was not buying it, shawn. >> many of us who watched the case on tv, we saw and heard things that the jury was not privy to. often the jury was out of the courtroom. doing, you know, that may have had an impact or do you think, as you said, the prosecution overtried the case? >> reporter: think actually, they overtried the case. i don't think that the collateral information out there would have made one bit of difference. they could not show premeditation, they could not show deliberation, they could
not show how this child died. shape, i was out -- shawn, i was out in this courtroom last week o wednesday of last week when my client, brandon sparks, the son of the meter reader testified. i got a chance to look at that jury. that jury was very intense and intent and tentative and listened to the evidence and came down with a decision. the question is: did casey anthony or -- kill her child or was it an accident? we may never know. what we do know and what the public wanted to do and this is what they could not do and what jose baezel to the jury. you can not decide this case on emotion if you decide yet on emotion, she's guilty, she's guilty. but if you decide kid -- it on the evidence, the evidence that is not there, you must find her not guilty. >> if you break yet downing
like that, it makes sense. in all fairness, you're a defense attorney and you're used to defending people who played devil's advocate on the other side. for those of us who are seeing, first of all, here's a mother who didn't report her daughter missing for 30 days and there are so many circumstantial things. and many people are asking what was the jury listening to? did they not hear that part of the evidence? yes, you're right and let me be very clear, shawn. circumstantial evidence cases have won out on many occasions. in this occasion, when you have cindy anthony taking the stand and saying that she's the one who looked for the chloroform and chloroform was something they said they found in the body of the automobile where the remains were supposed to have been and when you lis tonight fact that the meter reader, when he found the skulls of young, the remains of
young caylee anthony, that he himself said he took his meter reading stick, stuck it in the eyes of that skull and moved it. and then you have the medical examiner get on and say yes, i believe it was a homicide by virtue of the manner in which that skull was there but, the scene had been compromised by that time. reasonable doubt, there was reasonable doubt, unfortunately. unfortunately, justice was served because i do believe, and i think if the country believes, that when a child is missing for 31 days and the mother doesn't know where that child is, that clearly the mother could be implicated. >> clearly the case is not over yet. casey anthony, we know, will be sentenced on thursday. what do you think in she'll get time served because she's been in jail now for two years? she's been in jail close to threiers and is facing the four felony counts -- i stand to be corrected, four misdemeanor counts of lying to law enforcement. i think the judge is going to allow her to walk and i don't
think she'll spend other day in jail after thursday. all right, a lot of very, very emotional cases you said nationwide. defense attorney ted williams, always good to see you. thanks for coming in. my pleasure. our coverage of the casey anthony murder trial continues. go to www.myfoxdc.com to see the reading of the verdict again and we want to know what you think about this controversial case? look www.myfoxdc.com on facebook and post your comments. >> a virginia mother has been indicted in the death of her two-year-old son. he was found unresponsive in the family's minivan. karen murphy is accused of leaving her son ryan in the van one day back on june 17th. murphy found her son strapped in his car seat around 4:00 p.m. the child was reportedly last seen alive around 9:00 a.m. that day. murphy is charged with murder and child neglect. and we have a news alert that could make for a rough commute on i-66. a truck hauling hey caught fire in fairfax around 4:00 this afternoon. the driver pulled over when he spotted the smoke.

couple and the county executive, technically by law, sheik have stayed on the job in october when formerly sentenced and convicted on the felony obstruction charge and created a lot of outrage and medical, several council members and the county executive began dealing with her immediate resignation and there was too much pressure to ignore from what we could tell. brian? >> all right, thank you for. that. reaction to leslie johnson's resignation has many of you fired up. kar richard greenfield error error writes not good enough, this should be effective immediately and jackie turner writes should never ever have been allowed to take the seat. glad she's stepping down. we want to know what you think. join the conversation, like www.myfoxdc.com and post your comments. developing news from capitol hill. congress has less than a month to raise the debt ceiling or the u.s. may default on its debt the first time ever. president obama spoke minutes ago calling on republicans and democratic leaders to come to

heat and humidity? yes. this summer, billion line. more humidity coming in the next few days -- billion line, more humidity coming in the next few days. why it's not oppressive and what we haven't had much today, thunderstorms. you can see one of the clouds on the left side of the screen and some cumulous clouds trying to build up and haven't had anything at all. i guess technically speaking, there is a very, very slight chance that one of the parcels of air that is rising finds its way high enough to create a thunderstorm and more than anything, we're going to be dry here and there is a couple of thunderstorms out by the beach in southern delaware there, making yet over to the shore, rehog another rehoboth, bethany, ocean city and if you haven't gotten rain. you can see it to the north of you. maybe hearing the thunder here. here's the forecast for this evening. again, just an isolated thunderstorm and no more than that. and that is just basically
meaning one or two somewhere in the viewing area is possible. it remains wrong this evening, clouds at 84 and 81, some clouds at 9:00, 84 degrees and 11:00, so look at that, 81 degrees and that is going to be a very, very warm evening, a mild overnight and the wins just bare liable to give you some -- barely able to give you some relief. i have five, 10 miles an hour at times. it's 89 here, frederick is 93, and that is the warm spot out there right now. fredericksburg is moment; annapolis is not bad and cooler by the water. temperature of 86 degrees either side of the bay. the temperatures generally in the mid-80s and higher there and the real high temperature, the real hot stuff where you would expect out here in the central plains, down through texas, dessert southwest, 102 and that is looks like we'll warm up the next few days and didn'ten -- doesn't mean we're
going to be impressively hot. it looks like next week we can begin to tap the heat. the temperatures will be in the mid-90s for a time. it looks like the humidity will come back a little bit and be more oppressive the next few days and towards the end of the week, we'll get a break and the weekend is good. and still a boundary on top of us and that hasn't moved much, north or south and it's red and blue, red and blue, red and blue and this means stationary front and that is not going to move a lot. the thunderstorms by the beach, that is right or long this boundary and i suspect any chance or better chance of a thunderstorm this evening and that should be south and east along this boundary and we have enough stability from the high pressure here from the distribute to the north and west and that we're going to be dry.
there is a chance overnight tonight that this will move more to the north and with that, we can possibly get a shower here or a shower there and man a thunderstorm over night tonight and that is looking like it's to the south. south of the boundary, though, hot and homed and that is connect -- humid, and that is kicking off thunderstorms. there is a chance again, a slight chance of a spotty shower or a thunderstorm around that boundary overnight tonight and as it moves up to the north a bit and mid-60s for the suburbs, mild in town and lower 70s. look what we're thinking for tomorrow, a spotty shower possible around sunrise and 88 already hot at noon and again tomorrow afternoon, a spotty thunderstorm or shower is possible as the temperature approaches 90 degrees. i don't believe there is a chance of thunderstorms tomorrow as much greater than today and we'll only have a few. thursday, we should have widely
scattered storms and that frontal system comes through. the weekend looks real nice j. okay. >> lower humidity and the temperatures in the upper 80s. >> liking the sound of that. >> perfect. and if week keep yet that way, it will be fun. and thank you, gary. it's official, maria shriver filed for divorce from arnold schwarzenegger, citing irreconcilable differences. sources say the former governor is prepared to give her, quote, a very generous divorce settlement, possibly more than required. he is worth up to $750 million. do you the math. in california, it's 50/50. shriver's been offered more than 15 million alone and an advance in a tell-all of her life from growing up a kennedy and being married to schwarzenegger and his affair. prince william and his new wife will visit l.a. later this week and they wet on need to worry about security. harvey ref sip in l.a. what is the -- ref know is in
